He emphasized, "No matter how the fight goes, don't forget, this motherf***** can't really fight." In response, Jake Paul addressed the audience's boos with a derisive retort before turning his focus to Diaz.

He issued a final caution to Diaz, asserting, "They've been saying 'Nate's tough, Nate's a dog.' Well guess what, tomorrow, I'm dog-walking that b****! I'm putting him back on a leash and sending him back to the cage! I'm f****** him up!"

In contrast to the relatively calm pre-fight atmosphere, the encounter at the weigh-ins injected a burst of intensity into the buildup for their impending clash. Both fighters seized the moment to exchange verbal jabs and reaffirm their determination to emerge victorious in the upcoming bout.

As tensions escalated between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz during the faceoff, it became evident that the competitive fire was burning brightly, promising an electrifying showdown for fans eagerly awaiting their collision in the boxing ring.
